M.L.C.A. History – 1966

The President is recuperating from a heart attack for the first two months of the year.
We subscribe to the Michigan Outdoors Magazine for all the schools in the Walled Lake and Huron Valley Systems.
Augmenting the regular parties were several new ones that might well join the other as annual events. These are the “Hawaiian Luau” in July and the “Millionaires’ Party” in August. For pure entertainment, there was the bus trip to Tiger Stadium to see a night baseball game.
The board of directors was not idle for they approved the lighting of two trap fields for night shooting; new steel floors for the club house; up to $5,000.00 for a new wooden range building for the skeet and trap (which was practically finished by September); holding the MUCC State Skeet, Trap, Archery, Pistol Shoot at Multi-Lakes.
Busy though every one was with all the work involved in the many activities, there was still time to extend a helping hand to a fellow sportsman club in Windsor who was burned out. Multi-Lakes loaned them our club house for their meetings and presented them with a check for $370.00 to start a rebuilding fund. Not to be outdone, our little members of the Boy Scout Troop volunteered for instructing retarded children at the Proud Lake Day Camp, giving time from their summer vacation.
Despite all the wonderful things going on, there was trouble in the kitchen department. The trouble was to get volunteer help. Discussion centered around hiring help or leasing out the kitchen. But for the present it was decided to go along with one general chairman and twelve sub- chairmen.
